In July 2013, President Barack Obama launched Power Africa, a major initiative to double access to power in sub-Saharan Africa by 2030. On October 17, 2013 e4Dev invites Power Africa and Trade Africa Coordinator Andrew Herscowitz and USAID Energy Division Chief Allen Eisendrath to talk more about this initiative which aims to:
- Add 10,000 MW of cleaner, more efficient generation capacity
- Enable new electricity access for up to 20 million households and increase the reliability of the electricity supply
- Increase the number of countries participating in regional cross-border energy trade
- Enhance the resource management capabilities of selected countries, allowing them to gain greater energy security
The presentation will include a moderated question-and-answer session led by MIT Energy Initiative Deputy Director Robert Stoner.
Refreshments will be served.
